Two words: Bon Jovi.
Fine, here are a few more: The Jersey boys' Bounce, featuring the energetic single "Everyday" and "Undivided," the band's response to the events of September 11 hits shelves this week.
We've all been subjected to the beginnings of Christina's Stripped, but Jennifer Love Hewitt does Aguilera one better this week as she gets Barenaked for fans alongside Cali rap sextet Jurassic 5's latest LP, Power in Numbers, which includes the ubiquitous single "What's Golden" and a guest spot by Nelly Furtado on "Thin Line."
Fresh off their last full-length album, Murray Street, Sonic Youth return with I.C.P & the Ex for an eight-song EP for the In the Fishtank series, which has previously included June of 44, Low, Dirty Three and Tortoise. Meanwhile, J Mascis and the Fog get Free So Free and Ben Folds releases a live album from his 2002 solo tour.
Finally, Boy George plays DJ and serves up his favorite club mix on A Night Out With Boy George. And, really, who could resist that?
